September 3, 2011, Sermon Transcript
By Lawrence A. Nowell
1.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell needs protection on The Obedient Church of God ‘s hill property. This week he was beside a big caterpillar tractor that had a swinging bucket on it. The wheel slipped while it was on the steep hill causing the big bucket that is ½ inch steel to come down hard in a swinging motion on Mr. Nowell’s foot. Not a scratch. Not one broken bone. Amazing!
2.) Mr. Nowell needs continued protection.
3.) TOCOG’s enemies in Maryville need to be prayed for because a demon is persecuting them. Things are falling off shelves.
4.) TOCOG celebrated new moon day on September 1, which is the same as Elul 1, the sixth month of the Hebrew calendar. The new moon days are going to be celebrated from now on.
5.) The Obedient Church of God is corresponding with other off-shoot Churches of God, but we are not getting any responses, but that could be good because that means they are studying out the matter.
6.) Months ago one correspondent said, “Take us off your list. We don’t want to hear from you. We don’t want to have anything to do with you. Basically, they don’t want to hear about the rabbis moving the Sabbath to the sixth day in half of the rest of the world.
7.) At that time they didn’t want to hear that Hillel II had averaged God’s Holy Days in the fourth century, and his calendar should not be followed. So they requested, “Take us off your list.”
8.) Now TOCOG has a new list and a better list with a number of ex-Worldwide Church of God members. One membership has over 100,000 members that TOCOG is corresponding with.
9.) TOCOG teaches about Sky Father’s Day, the longest day of the year on June 19th, 20th, or 21st. This day is opposite to Christmas, which is the shortest day of the year. We don’t celebrate Father’s Day because we have to love our Father in heaven more than our earthly father.
10.) TOCOG members don’t incorporate Devil’s Day into our lives, and that includes Mother-goddess Day in honor of our mothers.
11.) Stop celebrating “Turkey Day” that represents Ra-Osiris god of Egypt where the goose would give up its life to the hunter so its young goslings could escape.
12.) TOCOG is getting this news out to all of the denominations. Mr. Nowell wrote in a letter to them, “How can you be in the first resurrection, and teach others in the millennium, if you yourselves are practicing Devil Days? There is no way around it. Sky-Father’s Day and Mother-goddess Day are both pagan in origin.
13.) Observing the new moon days is a step forward for the Obedient Church of God in obeying Yahveh and in obeying His Torah. The new moon days are in the Bible and their observance is still binding on God’s people.
14.) Isaiah 66:22-23 says, “As the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed (descendants) and your name remain. And it shall come to pass that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.”
15.) Isaiah gives a prophecy for the new heavens and the new earth, but the new moon observance has been in effect all through the ages when the patriarchs lived.
16.) In the days of David’s youth he didn’t show up at Saul’s new moon dinner because he was afraid of Saul.
Deuteronomy 12:32 says, “What thing soever I command you, observe to do
it. You shall not add thereto, nor diminish from it.”
18.) We can’t take new moon days out of our worship services.
19.) We can only go by the instructions of the Bible. It’s the only way we can live our lives.
20.) Proverbs 30:5-6 says, “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield to those who put his trust in him. Add you not to his words lest he reprove (rebuke) you, and you be found to be a liar.”
21.) We are not supposed to add “Turkey Day,” an extra day of celebration, to the Feast of Tabernacles, which represent seven thousand years.
22.) And Shimini Atzeret is a separate feast altogether.
23.) Father doesn’t want 4,000 different religions. He only wants the First Century religion, and TOCOG is identical to them as we are learning more all the time.
24.) One issue is not to move the seventh-day to the sixth day in half the world that is west of the International Date Line. That should go viral, which means it should go like a flash before all the ex-worldwide Church of God members. It should be a real shake-up to them when they soften their hearts.
25.) Churches of God, however, have devised plans to take out new moon days, cancel remembering them because of their rebellion. They need to observe them.
26.) Today’s sermon tells us how a person develops a “seared conscience” and we are not to have a seared conscience.
27.) Isaiah 30:1 tells, “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that devise plans, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin. (Carry out plans against God’s will.)
28.) God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book.
29.) Revelation 22:19 records, “And if any man shall take away (new moon days) from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city and from the things which are written in this book.
30.) Galatians 1:6 says, “I marvel that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel.” (A gospel that has no new moon days)
31.) Verses 7-8 “Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you; and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”
32.) All the patriarchs followed new moon days.
33.) Genesis 1:14 states, “God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven…for times and for seasons , for days and years.”
34.) Season means “moed,” an “appointed time.” In Leviticus 23 the feasts mean “moadim,” proclaimed holy convocations (commanded assemblies of congregation).
35.) Psalm 104:3 says, “He (God) appointed the moon for seasons…” All of the Bible ties together.
36.) Psalm 81:3 says, “Blow the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.” (Verse 4, “For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of God…”)
37.) In Ezekiel 46:1-3,”Thus says the Lord God; The gate of the inner court that looks toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.
38.) “And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the priests…shall worship at the threshold of the gate: then he shall go forth, but the gate shall not be shut until the evening.
39.) “Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the Lord in the sabbaths and in the new moons.”
40.) The sacrifice we offer is the sacrifice of our lips. Hebrews 13:15 says, “Offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually…the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”
41.) Gathering together at the gate of the inner court was a convocation, because the priests shall worship at the threshold of the gate and the people shall worship in the new moons. And the gate shall not be shut until the evening.
42.) Psalm 89:34 reminds us, “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.”
43.) Psalm 148:3-6 says, “Praise you him, sun and moon; praise him, all you stars of light. Praise him, you heavens of heavens, and you waters that be above the heavens. Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded and they were created. He has also established them forever and ever: he has made a decree which shall not pass.”
44.) Isaiah 66:23 says, “From one new moon to another…shall all flesh come to worship before me, says the Lord.”
45.) Each of us has been grafted on to the tree as an Israelite. It is not strange that we come before Yahveh on the new moon days. And we will be saved as spiritual Israelites, as part of Yah’s family. The ordinances on Israel are binding on them to this day!
46.) What was nailed to the cross were the charges against Jesus. In the center of the courtroom there was a list of charges against the accused person, who was also in the center of the courtroom.
47.) When Jesus was taken away (to the dungeon overnight), the charges were taken and nailed to the stake where Jesus was crucified.
48.) The law of God is eternal (The law is spiritual. Romans 1:14) Romans 3:31 says, We establish the law, not make it void.
49.) Jeremiah 31:31 predicts, “Behold, the days come, says the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.”
50.) Verse 33, says, “I will put my law in their inward parts and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”
51.) We are grafted in, and what a blessing. We are spiritual Israelites. And what was binding on Israelites is binding on us, or we have no part of Yah’s work, of Yah’s way of life.
52.) Romans 11:13-22 says, “For I speak to you Gentiles…if the firstfruit be holy the lump is also holy… so are the branches. And if some of the branches be broken off, and you being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partakers of the root and fatness of the olive tree; boast not against the branches…the root bear you.
53.) You stand by faith…toward you goodness (of God) if you continue in his goodness.”
54.) Being grafted in we must follow the Israelite’s religion which includes new moon days.
55.) Jeremiah 31:35-36 says, “Thus says the Lord, which gives the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night…If those ordinances depart from before me, says the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever.” And this will never happen.
56.) This is why TOCOG celebrated new moon day on September 1, 2011, which is also Elul 1, 5771.
57.) Bear Note: The ordinance is that all flesh shall appear before me on the new moon.
58.) Isaiah 66:23 records, “From one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, says the Lord.” Nothing has ever changed.
59.) We should have the New Moon Day Services unless we want to harden our hearts. Now we have to choose to observe the new moon days and not to refuse to hearken to God’s commands, showing a stiff-neck and impudent heart.
60.) A person who is impudent is bold, he’s brazen, he’s insolent, cocky, impertinent. A hard- hearted woman is audacious, sassy, forward, presumptuous, condemning, manipulative in words of the Lord.
61.) Impudence and hard-heartedness are offensive to Father. TOCOG doesn’t want anyone to harden his or her heart.
62.) The Israelites did harden their hearts. Jeremiah 23:36 says, “Every man’s word shall be his burden; for you have perverted the words of the living God, of the Lord…”
63.) Jeremiah 7:23 warns, “Obey my voice…Walk you in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.”
64.) I Peter 1:15 states, “Be holy in all manner of conduct.” This includes Yah’s new moon days.
65.) This is a wonderful truth to discover that new moon days are in force. Because we know that in the Kingdom of Heaven, and in the new heavens and the new earth this day will be observed.
66.) And new moon days were observed by all the patriarchs and by David. And, of course, it was never done away with.
67.) Please turn your heart to the Father and do what the disciples would do. Stop learning the pagan ways of this world.
68.) Be like a Berean and discus the new moon days. A man can live for a lie, but would he die for a lie? Would you give up your eternal life for a lie?
69.) Father has new moon days in the New Heavens and the New Earth. And we are supposed to be portraying the new heavens and a new earth. We can’t act as the rest of the congregation acts.
70.) What is a person’s conscience? And how is it seared? If you aren’t going to follow new moon days and say that you’re not not not not going to follow them, then it is possible your conscience is seared. The Spirit isn’t leading you and something is wrong.
71.) I Timothy 4:1-2”The Spirit speaks expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils (saying there isn’t any New Moon Day), speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.”
72.) There is a new moon day and there will be new moon days in the Kingdom of God. Everyone on earth will be celebrating the feasts of God and new moon days in the Kingdom.
73.) The Bible says we will be keeping new moon days, so don’t you dare scratch those verses out of your Bible and speak lies and hypocrisy to the point of having your own conscience seared with a hot iron.
74.) A conscience is an act of the mind. It is the power of the mind that affirms and it enforces moral obligation, and pronounces obedience or disobedience.
75.) A conscience doesn’t make the law, but it convicts passes judgment.
76.) A conscience convicts and enforces moral obligation to obey the law, and your conscience smiles on obedience, but it frowns on disobedience. So your conscience acts as a judge if you’ve been instructed.
77.) First you are instructed. Then you weigh the evidence and you have the have the Spirit of God working with you. Then your conscience smiles on obedience and frowns on disobedience, so you feel guilty if you are disobedient by not keeping the new moon days.
78.) As an act of the mind, your conscience is an affirmation testifying to your state of mind --to the agreement or disagreement with the will or law of God.
80.) You’ve heard about the law of God, about the new moon day, and you’ve been told places in the Bible where the new moon day is mentioned, and if your conscience becomes an agreement or disagreement with the law of God, it is up to you.
81.) And your decision with respect to the moral character of the agreement or disagreement of the will with the law, that reflects your character. In short, your conscience will give you the self-testimony upon using reason.
82.) So if you are feeling guilty that’s a good thing. Because your conscience will give you peace and happiness on the other hand.
83.) The Bible is written plainly enough that you don’t have to have any qualms about knowing that new moon day is in the Bible and that all flesh shall come to worship from one new moon to the next. Isaiah 66:23
84.) Now what is a seared conscience? It is the refusal or neglect to follow the power of the mind where you have seen that new moon day is in the Bible.
85.) A man may know his duty without feeling emphatic affirmation or moral obligation to do it. A seared conscience causes him to not feel bad about not doing it.
86.) He may know that he is wrong without his conscience being arraigned, being convicted of guilt or condemned. This state of mind clearly indicates a seared conscience.
87.) The text implies a state of insensibility (a seared conscience) to moral obligations and ends up in moral delinquency. The mind becomes insensible to moral obligation. And this insensibility may be confined to specific sins.
88.) So a person may keep the Sabbath, he or she might keep the feasts, but this person won’t keep the new moon days, so the conscience is still seared. (What days are observed may be in accordance with the wrong calendar dates of Hillel II’s fixed-day calendar.)
89.) What is intended by a seared conscience and what is the evidence of a seared conscience is apathy on keeping the new moon days.
90.) When questions concerning your own well-being and the well-being of others are not regarded or treated as important moral questions, indicates a seared conscience.
91.) When it’s not treated as morally useful to oneself or useful to others for all the peoples of the earth to have a new moon day, an opportunity to honor Yahveh, and appear before Him in praise of the new month is missed.
92.) A person can neglect his or her known duty and it probably is because his or her conscience is seared. And if you are neglecting your known duty, then your conscience is seared.
93.) A day on which people can honor Yeshua and Father for the beautiful creation, for the air that they breathe, for the water and land, rivers and oceans and lakes, fish in the sea is missed when a person does not have a new moon day.
94.) This is so important to understand because it ties in with what we read in Timothty. We can’t have seared conscience.
95.) I Timothy 4:2 says, “Speaking in lies (that new moon days aren’t going to be held by every one in a new heavens and a new earth), that means your conscience is seared by a hot iron.
96.) And a person with a seared conscience can hinder others because he or she goes around on his or her merry way, and others will think they are getting away with it.Why shouldn’t I?
97.) To observe the new moon day is a blessing, to be able to have that special day off if on your job you are able to take a leave.
98.) Some people are allowed sick days each year and these could be used for new moon days, as often as possible. When you can, take the day off.
99.) We are not living in this world in the sense of being apart of it, so we should celebrate new moon days as often as we can, so take a day off from work each month.
100.) new moon day will be celebrated by everyone in the world in the Kingdom under Yeshua’s rule. It is important to use that day to pay worship and homage to Yeshua and appear before Father and sing in services. On September 1th we sang our hymns and we had our service.
101.) If you don’t feel guilty or feel remorse for not celebrating new moon day, your conscience is seared. When you can trifle with new moon days, your conscience is seared.
Your relationship with Father has got to improve.
102.) When we have difficulties of understanding the new moon days, pray out to Father so that you can understand. Father didn’t give us anything we can’t do, so we must not neglect anything He gives us. It’s a duty incumbent upon us if we understand this. Then our hearts, our minds are not seared.
103.) Let the gospel come into my mind. I must affirm my moral obligation that I should follow new moon day and not walk around with a seared conscience.
104.) Don’t make excuses because it is very easy to appear on new moon day. Try to observe it next time in 29-30 days at the end of September since September 1, 2011, was new moon day, Elul 1. Studying the meaning of Elul has to do with us preparing for the Feast of Tabernacles.
105.) We don’t want to be presumptuous and just disregard new moon day, because if we are presumptuous, we have a seared conscience also.
106.) We made a vow to follow Father at baptism, which must be considered very carefully. Vows are important because we made a vow to follow every jot and tittle of Father’s Word. And that’s why we should follow new moon day.
107.) The new moon day is in the Bible so we must follow it. We have to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. We must not ignore our baptism and be a liar.
108.) Don’t follow some sophistry to justify any course of our disobedience.
109.) We made a promise to obey the Bible. New moon day is in the Bible. It’s going to be celebrated in the New Heavens and the New Earth. Just like the feast days, they are going to be celebrated by all men.
110.) Some just heard about the new moon day on September 1st, on today’s Sabbath sermon, September 3rd. You must consider this rediscovered truth, but by ignoring the new moon day observance their consciences can become seared.
111.) After considering the New Moon Day, put it into your mind to observe it and by September 29th of 30th you’ll tune in for when the new crescent moon is sighted in Jerusalem. Or else, if you indulge in putting it off, you will be searing your conscience.
112.) You’ve got to be acting on information as fast as it’s received and after considering it adopt truth immediately.
113.) Being a Christian is fun. And if your prayers are being answered and music is pertinent to the service, let’s play “The Cat Came Back” by Fred Penner of Winnipeg.
114.) Abbigayle Pussy Cat came home after being lost in a huge 4,000 acre forestland for 3 days.
115.) Whatever happens our faith is in Yeshua. TOCOG’s prayers are for all of God’s people to be in the marriage supper. There are stages to being in the marriage supper.
116.) If we are called by Father and understand the words of the Bible teachings, we have to respond to God’s commands and obey them, and also get pagan practices out of our lives. After we are called, with the knowledge we are given, we repent. And if we repent properly, we are chosen.
117.) For the last 6,000 years there have been 24 people a year who are saved, and added up they make 144,000 for the first resurrection. At least 24 people will follow every jot and tittle of God’s Word so Yeshua and use them to teach others during the millennium.
118.) If any “Christian” should say the eternal law is done away, every country in the world has laws, including Yeshua’s country. A country cannot be run without laws and it’s insanity to say the ten commandments have been done away with because if people break all of the ten commandments, there will be utter chaos.
119.) You have to know that if you understand the things that TOCOG is preaching, you are being called, and in order to be chosen, we have to start following.
120.) Now none of us are worthy by what we do, but we obey out of love to Yeshua and love to Father. And Yeshua and Father zero in on those who are obeying. Yeshua wouldn’t use disobedient servants. He couldn’t break His own law.
121.) We are invited to discipleship, but it’s a hard road with lots of trouble. We have to pick up our tree (cross) and walk.
122.) Bear Note: A Christian’s life is like riding a bucking bronco in Satan’s world.
123.) And it is of the present evil world. It’s not the planet that is evil. It’s the men in it. It’s not the earth, the grass or the trees that are evil. It’s you pogo. It’s me pogo.
124.) People are evil who are under the influence of the prince of the power of the air, and we have to resist that prince; Satan is broadcasting to us all.
125.) We have to choose of the tree of the knowledge of the good, and only good. We never choose of the tree of good and evil, or we’ll be cast into hell fire.
126.) The people of this earth are all eating of the tree of good and evil. And that’s why we have this mess. We cannot eat of the two trees. It can’t be the deception of some good and some evil just to accommodate getting things done. It all has to be good.
127.) Of course, we have to follow the seventh-day of rest in all of the world and not wait until Yeshua returns to restore all things.
128.) Hebrews 10:26 says, “If we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins. This applies to those who know to do right and refuse to do it.
129.) Jesus asked his disciples to follow him. David observed new moon day. The disciples observed the new moon day. We must follow the new moon day. We made a commitment to follow it.
130.) It is the will of the Father to follow every jot and tittle of His Word. It’s very easy to talk the talk. Let’s start walking the walk, including new moon day, to follow the Torah, to follow Isaiah 66:20 now and in the Kingdom.
131.) Isaiah 66:20 says, “And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the Lord out of all nations…to my holy mountain Jerusalem…as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the Lord.”
132.) You need to be able to teach others in the Kingdom so you must follow new moon days yourself now and inculcate the new moon day into your being. Follow it for the next seven years so that its part of you. Blessings come for obedience.
133.) We keep finding out new truths, new rediscovered truths. They are rediscovered truths because society has devoluted. It’s not evolution, but devolution and devilution. We need to get back to the faith once delivered to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and David.
134.) Be transformed in the renewal of your mind. Every verse in the Bible is so powerful.
135.) Romans 12:2 says, “Be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
136.) We renew our minds by growing in grace and knowledge. Do not balk at new truth to learn.
137.) Just this year, 2011, TOCOG found that the International Date Line is causing people to worship the Sabbath of the sixth day by moving the day forward 24 hours in half the world. There isn’t any imaginary IDL.
138.) TOCOG found out that Sky Father Day is a devil day.
139.) TOCOG found out the new moon day must be celebrated and the day gives us time to take a day off and have a holiday. It’s wonderful to have a day off. We raise our hands to Father and praise Him.
140.) These three truths are foundational because they involve days.
141.) Bear Note: Father is restoring the foundation regarding to what days to celebrate and days not to celebrate, such as Sky Father’s Day and Mother-goddess Day, the ones that are pagan.
142.) It’s ironic that Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell’s refusal to observe Turkey Day is what started him to consider having The Obedient Church of God. Father is teaching TOCOG basic foundational things of days.
143.) Now we have the opportunity to follow the new moon days, which are going to be in the New World. We have to follow the new moon days so we can teach others in Yeshua’s Kingdom.
144.) Out of love TOCOG is praying for you, we are all praying together so we can follow new moon days. It takes some study to consider observing the new moon days and then to act quickly and follow them each month. Don‘t refuse them and harden your heart. You don’t want to be hardening you heart.
145.) On September 1st TOCOG pointed out how many words there are in the Bible. The Bible has ¾ million words (nouns and verbs).
Old Testament has 593,493 words New Testament has 181,253 words The total word count is 774,746.
146.) Biblical Spotlight by Ozelia Welling is titled “Pillars in the Temple.”
“The Temple of God was Israel’s glory in the days of King Solomon. On the porch of the front entrance were two pillars, appropriately named”Jachin,” meaning “He shall establish” and “Boaz,” meaning “It is strength.” I Kings 7:21-22.
147.) “When the priests moved past these two columns, they walked into the Holy Place of the Temple. Then behind the magnificent curtain was the guarded knowledge of the ten commandments in the golden arc. Only the High Priest entered this sanctified Most Holy Place once a year.
148.) “When the priests moved past these columns, they walked into the Holy Place of the Temple. Interestingly, two pillars distinguish the meeting hall trailer that is being re-furbished for God’s people to gather together to have services in Townsend, Tennessee.
149.) “Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is establishing the truth of the Torah. The true doctrines of these scriptures will be in the hearts of those who love God and His ways. When Christ returns He will make them pillars because they are overcomers.
150.) “They will be important persons as James, Peter, and John were “pillars” in God’s First Century Church. To be a pillar in the end days is to be a living example. Galatians 2:9”
151.) The two pillars on the Meeting Hall could be a sign from God as His pleasure in our restoring His doctrines. Inspiring!
152.) The announcements of the world involve preparing for the Tribulation.
153.) There are new tracking devices now for facial recognition technology in unexpected places. Government officials are implementing setting up strategies for identifying people. This affects us when we are going to be tracked down like First Century Christians were tracked down and fed to the lions.
154.) The streets of America will have to be avoided. In the fall police officers from 40 departments will hit the streets armed with moris, the mobile offender recognition and information system. And it will obviously be used against Christians.
155.) This gaget when attached to an I-phone can take a measurement of a person’s face from five feet away. If you see a cruiser car or a police officer, stay 5 feet away.
156.) Once your picture is taken, you will be in the computer system, according to “computer vision central,” a new organization.
157.) They can also take a picture of the iris of your eye, while standing six inches away
158.) This biometric information can be matched to any data base of pictures, including potentially the largest collection of photos in existence, which is in FACE BOOK
159.) And the process is almost instant. So there’s no time for a suspect to opt out of supplying their picture to law-enforcement. If that cop is within five feet of you and he turns on his little hand- held moris device, you could be flown to the fema camp.
160.) This is the electronic frontier foundation, EFF. Now there is facial profiling by the biometric identifier. Walking down the street and you are 5 feet from a police car, they are scanning people.
161.) Where are these cameras? At the Department of Motor Vehicles. Half of the DMVs in the United States have the capacity to run your picture through biometric data bases. They can run your picture through biometric data bases to find out if you are on the “hot” list.
162.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell in one below “no fly” list because he speaks out against the politicians, not against the country of the United States, but against the evil Satanic politicians who are all Masons.
163.) Obama is a 32nd degree Mason, George W. Bush is Skull and Bones, Poppy Bush is a 33rd degree Mason, Netanyahu is a 33rd degree Mason, Shimon Perez is a Mason, Juan Carlos of Spain is a 33rd degree Mason. The whole New World Order is Masonic.
164.) The casinos are having facial recognition to identify the card counters. Card counting doesn’t work that well and Christians shouldn’t be there anyway.
165.) One of the secrets in gambling, it goes by runs, by a section of winning and a section of losing. There is no logic for it because the cards are rigged. There is what is known as dealing seconds, which is dealing the second card instead of the top card.
166.) If you are winning in Poker or any game while playing with your frien ds, thento with that run. It doesn’t have to make sense to you. Gambling goes in streaks, streaks of loss and streaks of winning. That’s why people get wiped out. They figure they can’t lose twenty runs in a row. Yes it can. Also, there can be winning, sixteen hands in a row.
167.) And they are bringing the system into bars, and into shopping malls.
168.) And they are bringing the system into all of Japan. The Japanese vending machines now suggest soft drinks based on your face, your age. The machine will realize your age and our gender and it will be telling the weather report out there. And then the machine will talk to you and tell you what soft drink to have.
169.) Bill boards in Japan have technology . As a person walks by the electronic bill boards change depending upon the person’s sex and age and presents them with appropriate advertising.
170.) Truck stops are now using facial recognition to gauge the alertness of drivers.
171.) For service workers Omeron is using a smile scan to see if employees are smiling enough to the appropriate level of enthusiasm on the job.
172.) Workers have to smile on the job, or the facial recognition Moris will report that you are not smiling on the job with the appropriate enthusiasm.
173.) Stay away from the facial recognition programs and this is important for us to know because we don’t want to be thrown to the New World Order, but want to avoid.
174.) Darren Clarke was wrongly excoriated by Mr. William F. Dankenbring of Triumphant Prophetic Ministry. The truth is that Darren’s response was to someone unknown to him who forwarded an article regarding September 11, 2011.
175.) And Darren did not send out responses to everyone in TPM. He only sent it out to two of his friends.
176.) And Darren did not act as a prophet endorsing the other fellow’s premonitions about September 11. Darren didn’t declare any particular time or requisite that would be met for the United States to be blown up or to be attacked. So Darren was very much misrepresented in what he sent out.
177.) Pray that Darren has peace and he is no more excoriated or debased because he didn’t do anything wrong.
178.) If the United States was attacked, it would probably be New York, Miami, and Los Angeles.
179.) A question came in on divorce. TOCOG gave a little study on the sanctity of marriage. Basically, there is only one reason allowed in the New Testament and that is for adultery, and even then the mate doesn’t have to divorce the person, but he or she is allowed to.
180.) Matthew 19:9 says, “Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery: and whoso marries her which is put away does commit adultery.”
181.) Marriage is a sanctified relationship, so a person doesn’t want to use any excuse to divorce. One other exclusion would be for a man to find his wife was not a virgin, or find some uncleanness in her. Deuteronomy 24:1
182.) One person posed the question, “Where in the Bible does it say I’m bound to you?” When a couple make a vow they are bound unless the other person commits adultery.
183.) It is time to prepare for the feast. September 1st turns out to be Israel’s month of Elul, which is an anachronym. Song of Songs 6:3 says, “I am my beloved and my beloved is mine.” The “I” refers to Israel. “Israel” is “God’s beloved.”
184.) Bear Note: Israel is God’s beloved (in the month of Elul). “God is mine.”
185.) Elul is a very special month. It means “search”; a time when “I” is the “people of Israel;” “beloved” is the “holy one.” We are to search our souls.
186.) The sermon fit in today about searching our souls and not hardening our hearts. We are learning what it means to sear the hardened heart.
187.) After the Israelites demonstrated their lack of faith in God by creating and worshipping a golden calf and Moses saw this, he smashed the first set of commandments.
188.) Then Moses had to hike it up the mountain again to the top. He did this on the first of Elul; then he remained there for forty days.
189.) Elul is a significant time of teshuvah, meaning repentance. This is the same period of time Moses spent on Mt. Horeb pleading for the forgiveness for the people of Israel for having Aaron make them a golden calf to worship.
190.) Moses beseeched God to spare the Israelites, and God responded positively by instructing Moses to create a new set of tablets for the ten commandments.
191.) Moses returned to the Israelite camp on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). So forty days from Elul 1 is Atonement, the tenth day of Tishri.
192.) In the New Testament during the same period of time John the Baptist preached in the wilderness and Yeshua was baptized and went into the wilderness for forty days, coming back on Yom Kippur.
193.) Bear Note: Moses came back from the mountain top on Atonement; Jesus came out of the wilderness on Atonement (Yom Kippur). And they both started out on Elul 1.
194.) The Jewish tradition teaches that the holy one is more accessible during the forty day period beginning with the start of Elul and culminating with the first ten days of Tishri and ending with Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) at the end of forty days.
195.) The mystical sages refer to this period as when “The King Is In the Field.”
196.) This is based on the notion that when a king is enthroned in his palace, he’s not easily accessible. Audience is granted only to those who merit His attention.
197.) But when the king is out in public from Elul 1to Day of Atonement, forty days, anyone may approach him. When the king is in the field, out to inspect the produce of the land, he is concerned about the well-being of the inhabitants of his kingdom.
198.) Not only is this a time when a king may be approached by the farmer, but the farmer should approach him and show respect and take full advantage of this rare opportunity to express his needs and thoughts to the king.
199.) In this this month of Elul is the time when the sages say that the Eternal King leaves His heavenly throne and descends to inspect the world. This is the period when some believe that we are closest to God. And God is most receptive to our prayers.
200.) We look to the words of the prophet Isaiah who said in 55:6, “Seek God when He is at hand, and call upon Him when He is near.” “Seek the Lord while He may be found.”
201.) We can make special efforts during this period of Elul to renew our commitment to God when the Holy One is traditionally nearest to us.
202.) Yom Teruah , called the Day of Trumpets, is coming. It is also known as Rosh Ha Shannah,meaning “head of the year.”Ten day later is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement
203.) The forty days between Elul 1 and the Day of Atonement on Tishri 10 is a special time to get close to the Father. Yeshua, the living word of God, is the door to the Father.
